ROGER FEDERER VS NOVAK DJOKOVIC PREVIEW
Ahead of the final, Federer spoke of his admiration for Djokovic.
“If I think of Novak, one thing that jumps out at me, is his jump back and to the left.
“You know, how he’s able to defend on that side, which I think has won him numerous matches and trophies. He does that better than anybody.
“Nobody else really has it as consistent and good as he has, if you want to talk about Novak and one shot really.”
While Djokovic was similarly full of praise for the Swiss.
“Federer, you know, we all know how good he is anywhere, but especially here,” he said.
“This surface complements his game very much. He loves to play very fast. Takes away the time from his opponent. Just doesn’t give you any same looks. He just rushes you to everything.
“So for players maybe like Nadal or myself that like to have a little more time, it’s a constant pressure that you have to deal with.
“I’ve played with Roger in some epic finals here a couple years in a row, so I know what to expect.”
